Where shall we go on our honeymoon?
We're not married yet, of course. We're not even engaged. Why am I using the term "we"? There is no "we," there's just "me," but I like to plan ahead.
So about that honeymoon: I live in Florida, 8 blocks from the beach...a Caribbean adventure is absolutely the wrong choice. I need some adventure. Hmm.
1) Drive the perimeter of Iceland, stopping in the little villages along the way. Iceland is basically one big volcano that has been covered by a glacier, so everyone lives on the coast. Driving the perimeter should take about 4 or 5 days, and there are hot springs and towns and all sorts of bizarre volcano-esque sights to see along the way.
2) Wander the streets of Singapore and eat everything in sight. Singapore is renowned for having the best street-food vendors in the world, possibly better than actual restaurants. Noodles and street-meat! Delicious.
3) See the baobab trees of Madagascar. Yes, this is a beach-centric trip, but it's worlds apart from getting wasted in a Caribbean resort. Madagascar is a fascinating island-country that separated from Africa and took its own evolutionary path through life; most of the plants and animals are gone thanks to people wanting "tropical hardwood" floors in their houses, but what's left is still beautiful.
4) Hang out in Edinburgh. I have no idea what there is to do there. I just think it would be cool. Although if we were to go to the UK, my future-spouse would have to agree to making a stop in southern England to see Highclere Castle from "Downton Abbey." Hey, marriage isn't always easy. You have to do things to make each other happy.
